    • How safe is Formosa Gardens area?

      Kissimmee 5 hours ago

      Hi, VT'ers. Me and my family are planning to spend next holidays in Orlando/Kissimmee area. We've been there several times but we always stayed in gated communities. This time we're going to rent a house near Formosa Gardens but it isn't in a gated community so I'm a little concern about safety. Should I be concern about safety? Is it safe to leave the house alone during the day/night? How safe is Formosa Gardens area? I really appreciate any advice or comment. Thanks

    • Feedback/Suggestions needed for Portland/Seattle Trip

      Seattle Jul 21, 2016 at 1:49 PM

      The plan is to fly into Portland or Seattle and fly out of the other city.
      We will rent a car and want to definitely see the highlights that are most reasonable given our time constraints.
      I've heard the Oregon coast is amazing. Also heard about the hiking in the gorge!
      As for Washington - I know the winery Chateau St Michelle is nearby - that may be more doable.
      My boyfriend has never been to Seattle so I want him to see the market etc.
      But I would also love to see some of the whales and not sure if trying to squeeze in any of the islands is worth it or reasonable.
      We are foodies and hope to experience the each city for atleast a day a half plus some excursions.
      Any suggestions you can offer about routes to take - things to see and do and or a reasonable itinerary for 7 days is awesome. We don't want to come home exhausted but we also aren't afraid to pack a lot into a day and want some unique experiences that we can't have in other states!
      Thank you!

    • Mix of car camping & backcountry - suggested spots?

      Olympic National Park Jul 16, 2015 at 8:33 AM

      Hi there! My husband and I will be spending about a week in Olympic National Park at the end of July/beginning of August. We are experienced car campers but would like to try to do at least a night or two in the backcountry this trip, so we're reading up and stocking up on backpacking essentials.

      Our tentative plan is to drive first to the coast and spend a few nights beach camping (Mora/Rialto area, most likely), then drive inland for the remainder of our trip. We are thinking about parking at Graves Creek and spending a night there, then hiking in and spending at least a night or two backcountry two and from Enchanted Valley, or perhaps a bit beyond. To anyone who knows, does that sound like a good plan? Anything we might not know that we should? (We know about the ban on backcountry fires, and about bear canisters, etc.)

      From there, we have two or three days before or after to play with. Any other campground recommendations we should definitely visit, if we'd like to see some of the park's great stuff but also avoid driving too much or trying to squeeze too much in? Should we keep the Quinalt area / Graves Creek as our home base, or should we venture around to other spots?

      Also, I know that the frontcountry campsites are first-come first-serve. Any advice on how early you really have to get there, or what to do if a site is full?

      Thanks for your help!!
